The Lectures

Boston, Mass. (The Mother Church).—Mrs. Blanche K. Corby, lecturer; introduced by Bicknell Young, who said in part:—

Some years ago while walking in the city of Paris one day with a friend, we met a friend of his who said that he had just been assisting at a concert, which he praised in the highest terms. After we parted from him I expressed some surprise that a performer should be so frankly enthusiastic about a performance in which he had taken part; whereupon my friend, with only partially concealed amusement, informed me that the gentleman, using the word assist in a sense frequently employed in French, meant that he had assisted at the concert as one of the audience, not as a performer. In this beautiful and true sense we all assist at a Christian Science lecture. It matters not whether one is led by curiosity to come, or because of the interest aroused by having heard or observed that Christian Science is a cheering doctrine, or whether one comes hoping that religious faith may be strengthened, or whether one comes because, already immeasurably blessed by Christian Science, he finds in the restatement of its divine facts recurring inspiration, or whether one comes because he has turned to Christian Science for healing after having sounded the depths of suffering and wrung them out—one and all come, at any rate, in an expectant attitude, consciously or otherwise seeking the one God and His ever compassionate and available Christ as taught in Christian Science. In these times, when the whole material world seems shaken, it is a privilege to hear a lecture by one who speaks of those things which, the apostle says, cannot be shaken, from the standpoint of great experience in healing the sick, redeeming the sinful, and in teaching the pure metaphysics of Christian Science.
